Garganta El Saltillo y pueblo blanco.

El viaje a El Saltillo y Canillas de Aceituno.

En la excursión a la garganta de El Saltillo y Canillas de Aceituno saldremos del centro de Málaga (calle ordoñez 2) en nuestra furgoneta confort. Es un viaje de 50 minutos que compartirás con otros viajeros independientes de diferentes países. Durante el trayecto podrán descubrir el valle de la Axarquía. Es un valle único en España porque está especializado en plantaciones tropicales, mayormente mangos, aguacates y chirimoyas.

La excursión hasta la Garganta de El Saltillo.

Una vez en Canillas de Aceituno, empezaremos nuestra excursión. En primer lugar cruzaremos el bonito pueblo de Canillas de Aceituno. Aquí, la población vive prácticamente aislado del turismo. Se dedican mayormente a la agricultura y construcción. Las calles están llenas de plantas y flores lo que hacen de este pueblo uno de los más bonitos de Málaga. Las paredes blancas de las casas reflejan el sol como si de un espejo se tratase.

Mientras cruzamos las calles más bonitas se dará cuenta lo duras que son estas tierras. Las calles empinadas se hacen sentir en las piernas. Una vez alcanzado la parte más alta del pueblo cogeremos el sendero marcado por la acequia, en el límite con el parque natural.

Desde allí, caminaremos junto a la acequia árabe hasta el cañón. Cruzaremos plantaciones de olivos, preciosos miradores sobre el valle y diversas plantas aromáticas. El sendero es estrecho pero mayormente llano con un par de áreas de pendiente de 5 minutos cada una. Pararemos en diferentes ocasiones para descansar e interpretar el paisaje.

Después de 2 horas de camino alcanzaremos El Saltillo, garganta excavada por el río almánchares. Aquí el paisaje es sobrecogedor. Cruzaremos varias pasarelas en una pared del cañón hasta que alcanzamos el río. Allí, disfrutaremos de nuestro picnic y nos relajaremos junto al río. Las aguas cristalinas son ideales para darse un baño en sus bonitas pozas. Es el mejor premio después del camino andado.

El Camino de vuelta.

Después de una media hora disfrutando junto al río, comenzaremos el camino de vuelta. nos hemos adentrado en la tarde y el sol empieza a bajar. Las cabras montesas estan sedientas y bajan al río a beber agua. Es un momento perfecto para verlas. Cuando la puesta de sol se acerca, los colores en la garganta se vuelven anaranjados, el paisaje se siente mágico por momentos.

Casi hemos llegado a Canillas de Aceituno. Cogemos de nuevo la acequia. El sonido del agua junto al de los pájaros hacen del paseo una delicia. Los colores en las montañas cambian según la puesta de sol se aproxima.

Es hora de subir de nuevo a la furgoneta y volver para Málagacon la sensación de haber vivido una experiencia única y, quizá, haber hecho amigos para toda una vida.

Afonso brought us to a very special gorge via an authentic village on the mountaintops. The views were insane, especially on our way back as evening was slowly crawling over the mountains. The cherry on the top were the montain springs we swam in and drank from - the water was crystal clear! Especially on a hot day, that's such a boon. The snack was perfect, as well as Alfonso's engagement throught the trip. He did always make sure the group is secure and even dived for our bottlecap when it decided to escape us. We could have done it, but he raced me to get it first with unmatched hospitality. He even shared the pictures he took, as well as suggestions where to go to in Malaga for food, drinks and fun. Muchos gracias Alfonso! :)

Loved getting out

Alphonso has a great knowledge base and shares willingly. He looks after each of his guests and is ever handy to assist over difficult hiking parts. Loved getting out into the country and learning about the agriculture and local practices.

very recommended

My husband and I enjoyed a great hike with Alfonso in the National Park about an hour's drive from Malaga. Alfonso is a great guide who has knowledge and appreciation of the landscape , its geography and history. It's not a trail you would easily find without a guide. Beginning in one of the quieter White Villages we wound our way up through the hills following the trail of the ancient irrigation canals. Alfonso has a great sense of humour and quickly established a comfortable rapport with the group ( there were 8 of us). It's not a stroll but it's very manageable if you have a reasonable level of fitness and it's well worth the effort. It was a great contrast to the buzz and business of the city and and insight into the lives of small farmers in the locality. We'd have no hesitation in recommending it.

Very glad we did it

My wife and I were looking for a hiking experience with some local info and spectacular views, we got all that and more on this trip. We met in Malaga center and Alfonso drove us all up to the beginning of the hiking trail by a local village. The hike itself was amazing taking us along a route with very little foot traffic from anyone else but our group, while we went Alfonso told us many stories and pointed out local landmarks and plant life, there were so many spots to take breathtaking photos. As a group we all got to know each other a bit as well which was lovely, we stopped for a picnic, which Alfonso provided, and a few of us took a dip in the water by a waterfall. This was followed by hiking back down the trail while the sun set, amazing day and we are so glad we did it.

Beautiful scenery

Beautiful scenery I wouldn't have found on my own, hiking together with a small group and keeping things simple made this an experience I am really happy I decided to join! Also, the van is comfortable, the instructions are clear and easy to follow and Alfonso is a friendly, easygoing guide with a deep knowledge about the area.. all in all making this a great day!

amazing trip, amazing group

We were lucky to do 2 tours with Alfonso - this one and el torcal. Both were stunning views and incredibly different walks. Alfonso was friendly led the walk at a pace comfortable for the group and pointed out any interesting facts. The highlight of the Saltillo gorge walk was the picnic by the waterfall and sunset on the walk back.

Intimate experience

A lovely trek into the local wilderness through a small village. It was a fun, long hike that spanned interesting locations, and ended with a lovely picnic. Definitely recommended, as the experience felt personal, quiet, and intimate.

Very nice tour

Very nice tour through the raw landscape! Alfonso was a great storyteller about the culture and environment. Had a great knowledge because of his background as a geography expert :) Would do again, and also the route is a slightly daring, so a decent psychical shape is adviced!

Een fantastische hike door boomgaarden, langs zeer smalle bergpaadjes en de woeste omgeving van Malaga. Goede conditie en goede schoenen zijn echt vereisten. Was een prachtige ervaring!

Beautiful walk

In general I do not especially like to hike in groups, but this trip was the exception on this rule. Nice, and the higher we went, spectacular views. Good rhytm of walking with time for foto's.

Stunning location

This was a beautiful hike to a stunning location. A great place to have lunch, and I felt Alfonso really prepared us by having water and snacks. I loved hearing a little bit more about the local culture, as well as getting to learn a lot about local flora and fauna. The herbs all smelled delicious that were growing along the path. Oh and we got to see the mountain goats!

10 stars!!

If I could, I would give this experience 10 stars. Wonderful hike. Beautiful vistas. Alfonso couldn't have been more friendly. He clearly has a passion for and deep knowledge of this area. This day surpassed all my expectations. If you enjoy hiking, you will love this hike. Highly recommend.

very enjoyable

A long hike in the beautiful mountains. Alfonso knows the mountain, the people, and the background of the area. He has a good sense of humor and made the journey very enjoyable.

Something different

This hike will give you different experiences: first the ride from Malaga to a typical white village, then a nice walk through this lovely village with narrow streets filled with beautiful plants and flowers. Finally the hike up in the mountains- very exciting- all the way Alfonso shares his knowledge about the place and the nature.

what a great day

I had a great day with Alfonso and the rest of the group. Really nice and quiet village with a lot of flowers and plants and friendly people. The hiking is suitable for everyone, the sunset was gorgeous! We haven't done the swimming part, because it was January, but in summer would be really nice to get in this natural "jacuzzis". Oh, and we saw lots of wild goats on the way.Thank you Alfonso for the pleasant time together :)

Great adventure

This was my first time doing an AirBnb experience and I’m hooked! Alfonso put together a great adventure, the sights were beautiful, and the day was Awesome!! Word of warning to folks: there are parts of the path that are close to the edge with little protection from falling - Alfonso was great ensuring everyone was safe and helping us one by one over the trickiest parts but be sure to heed the warnings as this walk is not for folks with a fear of heights or vertigo.

Had a great time

Had a great time with Alfonso. The walk took in some beautiful scenery and we never felt hurried. The pace was leisurely and the terrain easy going. Alfonso was a genial host, very personable and knowledgeable about the local area and customs. We had a great afternoon in his company.

Worth every penny

Worth every penny - the views were absolutely stunning, Alfonso was a fantastic and friendly host who shared knowledge of the area, making the hike even more interesting. We are just gutted we couldn't do any more of his hikes whilst in Malaga!

This was an awesome experience! So much fun and the snacks at the end were fantastic (more than just your usual cereal bar)! Would highly recommend but make sure you’re ready for a LONG walk!

Vi hade en riktigt skön eftermiddag och kväll. Vacker natur, lagom vandring med några branta partier. Det var skönt att svalka av sig i flodbäddarna. Vi blev bjudna på god ost och korv från regionen. Alfonso är en mycket kunnig guide som har mycket kunskaper om regionen. Allt som allt en mycket trevlig tur som vi varmt kan rekommendera.

Samen met mijn dochter van 16 deelgenomen aan deze wandeling. Alfonso is een leuke, gezellige gids met goede kennis van het gebied. Zijn Engels is prima en hij heeft goed contact met veel mensen in het witte dorpje waar je start en eindigt. De wandeling vond ik heel goed te doen, ook met een temperatuur van circa 28 graden. En aangekomen bij de rivier kun je een heerlijk verkoelend bad nemen. Dus neem vooral zwemkleding mee. In het dorp en ook halverwege de wandeling kun je je Dopper/waterfles (bij)vullen. Bij een volgend bezoek ga ik zeker weer een andere route bij Alfonso boeken: aanrader dus!

This was absolutely worth it! We are so glad that we went on this experience. Alfonso took us through one of the white villages where people actually live.

I recommend the trip. Alfonso is a very friendly and helpful person. He prepared a nice picknick with Spanish food and shared his knowledge about everything we have seen.

Definitely recommended

Our hike with Alfonso was perhaps our favorite part of our trip to Spain! Myself, my husband, and my two daughters (ages 12 and 15) enjoyed every part of the hike. We loved walking through the quaint little village, hiking through the olive groves and marveling at the Arab canals, seeing many wild goats, looking down the steep cliffs, and swimming in the beautiful waterfalls and pools. Alfonso also supplied a delicious snack. He was very knowledgeable about the history of the area as well as the plants and animals along the path. I would definitely recommend this experience to anybody!

Really good tour!

It was a really good tour! Not hard, the view is amazing, and in the end there is a chance to cool down in some small lakes. During the tour Alfonso was really kind, he said some interesting things about the place, the plants and he also offered some food :D I think it’s a cool program!

It was a great experience. I loved the mountain views. I couldn't have done that by myself. Alfonso showed us and told us about some kinds of plant while we hiked. He knows well about nature and the mountain and has a sense of humor. What he told us was very interesting. I'm so glad I joined the activity.
